RICHARD McWilliams and Coby Santos were named the finals and regular season Most Valuable Players at the conclusion of the NMI Rollers Basketball Association Men's Tournament on Sunday at the Koblerville gym.

It was a tougher battle the second time around but McWilliams remained a prolific scorer,  delivering 11 points and two assists as The Game led 43-42 by the end of the first half.

McWilliams continued to deliver in the second half, scoring 13 points as The Game edged the Sixers 81-80 to win the championship.

Sharing the spotlight with McWilliams is regular season MVP Coby Santos of the Ol’Aces who made his presence known throughout the tournament by averaging, per game, 21.8 points, 6.8 rebounds, 3 assists, 4.2 steals and 0.5 block.
